Have you upgraded to Windows 10 v1903 or v1909

Have you noticed any major [feature] update in the last little while? It is the one that can take 45+ minutes to do.

If not, you need to check to make sure you have either 1903 or 1909 installed on your Windows 10 computer. To do this:

  1. Open “Settings” or “PC Settings” [this will depends on what menu you see].
  2. Click on “System” [it’s always in the upper left corner of the 10+ icons in the window].
  3. On the left side scroll down and click on “About”.
  4. On the right side scroll down until you see “Windows specifications”.
  5. Ignoring the other details, you must see version 1903 or 1909.

If you are at 1809 or prior, it may be because your Anti-virus version may be too old/out-dated. Microsoft is stopping any Windows 10 computer from getting the latest version until the Anti-virus is updated correctly.

In addition, if you are at 1803 and before, you will not get any further updates to Windows [including the monthly ones] until you upgrade to 1903 or 1909.

You can run the Upgrade Assistant to check if you computer is compatible or to upgrade. There are some older processors which may have been compatible with older versions of Windows 10 but not the latest.

PS – 1903 and 1909 are almost identical. Either version is OK to be on.
